England vs Austria match preview & prediction 

Match preview

England women’s team hope to start their Euro 2022 campaign with a victory when they meet Austria in their game opener later today.

The hosts, who were eliminated in the semifinals in Euro 2017,  will be looking to register a win in front of their home support at Old Trafford in their quest to win their first major trophy. 

Salina Wegman, the England manager who won the Euro 2017 Championship with Netherlands, will be hoping to repeat it with England this time and would like to kick off the campaign with a victory against Austria. In their last six games they won with a 30-2 on aggregate goal margin.

Austria, on the other hand, will prove to be a tough opponent for England. Like their opponents, Austria also reached the semifinals of Euro 2017 before losing to Denmark on penalties.

They recently faced Engaland in a World Cup qualifier and narrowly lost 1-0 last November. While England will be hoping for a repeat of that result, Austria will hope otherwise if they are to kick-off their campaign on a winning note.

If the Norwegian’s recent form in their last 8 games (seven wins in eight games and scoring 33 goals) is anything to go by, England is in for a tough match.

However, the Lionesses are a huge favourite to win the competition.
